What’s the difference between Restylane and Juvederm? Is one better for facial wrinkles?
Both Restylane and Juvederm are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a clear gel and is a naturally occurring substance found in our own bodies. They differ in the way that it is manufactured and that Restylane goes through a process where the gel is essentially pushed through a screen creating very tiny particles of this gel, whereas Juvederm is processed in a way that creates a very smooth, non-granular gel. There are differences in their chemical properties and viscosities and cohesiveness because of these different manufacturing processes, but overall they are relatively similar in their effect and longevity and I certainly use both of these products on a regular basis.
